Week 8 Reflection

July 25, 2017

Final Reflection

The journey of the hero! Not sure if I am a hero in the land of digital storytelling, but I have answered the call nonetheless: from cosmos, to chaos, to a return home, this class has been an amazing journey. At the start of 5340 I didn’t even really know how to use Twitter! Well sorta… However, Brad set the expectations high per using the blog to synthesize our work and reflect, to use Twitter to post and share, and utilize to annotate articles and video as a community of learners. I tanked pretty hard out of the gate as my first blog post below shows. I didn’t embed my work, I didn’t link properly, and overall it felt pretty uninteresting. This was the call to adventure and I bumbled along until crossing the threshold. Ach…

Week 8 Work:

Podcast with DDM for week 8 reflection – this 20 minute dialogue went after the main aspects of the final reflection. This seemed like a natural way to co-create and synthesize our thoughts on the course. We had fun! We discussed objectives, having/doing/being/knowing, favorite moments, take-aways, stretching, and our picks for summer jams. It was a 45 minute discussion that we edited down in order to accent the key aspects of our work. We hope you enjoy it.

Final thoughts? my Google Cardboard VR setup came in the mail today. I have become a participant and a creator of digital media. I now wear the badge proudly!

Goodnight sweet prince. You have them on backwards 🙂
